We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. It was clean, comfortable, quiet. The reception area is very nice with an original decor and nice helpful staff. Our room was a little small compared to the usual size of rooms at Holiday Inn Express, but it was comfortable and very clean. I think the maid got the pillows confused also since we only had hard pillows in the room despite them having soft signs on it, but that's a detail. It's a brand new hotel in an industrial area, so we had a little trouble finding it with our GPS that was sending us to a residential area across the highway which apparently has the same street name. Once we finally got there, it was easy to find parking right next to the hotel, but they do have an indoor parking as well. Breakfast was very good for a free continental breakfast, with a choice of local food usually available. The staff always made sure there wasn't anything missing there, so really quite good. There's a big shopping mall about 15min away of foot, or 3 minutes by car. It has a big food court, a supermarket and many other stores, so that's very convenient. The hotel's location is very central if you want to visit Belem, Estoril, Cascais, Sintra and Lisbon (with the highway leading to all these places meters away) , but if you're there to visit Essentially Lisbon, it's a little far from downtown. Going there by car is rather fast but not very practical because of the narrow confusing streets there, but there's a bus right next to the hotel that takes you all the way downtown and to Belem. The problem is that this bus has stops like every 100m before getting downtown, so that pretty short drive still takes 45-60 minutes (1euro75). If you have plenty of time it's very convenient, but if you're short on time, the drive could make you crazy. Belem however takes about 15 min so it's not so bad. Anyways, the hotel is a good deal if you have some spare time and don't mind being far from downtown Lisbon, if in a hurry it might be better to drop a few more bucks and go for something closer.
